New dining hall and kitchen incorporating the refurbishment of an existing boarding house in a Grade II Listed building.
The approach responds to the school’s walled campus which contains a collection of interesting buildings, from different periods, in a landscaped setting.
Thus the new dining hall was conceived as a series of glazed pavilions, distinct from the masonry architecture of the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century house, and which take advantage of the view of the grounds.
The scale of the new building is managed by forming the main dining hall as two adjacent pavilions, with a taller staff dining room hinting back to the dome and dutch gables of the main house.
A new kitchen and servery were provided within the existing building, together with improvements to boarding accommodation.
